My dream lineup
PG - Parker. . . Mills. . . DeColo. . . Joseph
SG - Green. . . Ginobili . . . Neal
SF - Leonard . . Jackson
PF - Duncan . . .Diaw
C - Splitter . . . Lorbek . . . Bonner
Now there is one roster spot left. The question is is Blair good enough for that roster spot?

He should not be a starter. He should be a 15-20 minute energy rebounder. Like Bonner is a 15-20 floor spreading shooter. Define the role, and live with it.
Of course, Blair is always on the trade table. If another team can help fill a need for an energy rebounder, do it. A second round pick isn't enough.
Good point on the value for the money. I would trade him for a late 1st round pick in a heartbeat. Maybe Blair and Joseph for a early/mid 1st round pick.

Remember, he is only 23. I think it all boils down to wether or not we can find a better player for that 15th roster spot. I think we won't.
